Food Network and Cleveland places to eat

Unread postby Triple-S » Mon Jan 26, 2009 4:04 pm

I've been watching a lot of these specials as of late on the travel channel and food network, like "man vs. food" and "greatest pizza/bbq places", stuff like that. I've been a bit disapointed that no Akron, Canton or Cleveland place up there, I've seen Columbus featured (Some german sausage place that's all you can eat and looks great beyound belief, and a Sandwich shop with sandwichs called dagwoods, that look awesome) and Pittsburgh (Quaker Steak, which has the greatest wings in the world and Priminati/paninis, the two things from Pittsburgh I'll admit to liking), but I've yet to notice any NEOhio places featured, my question is, have we? and if we have not, what restaurants around here deserve to be featured on those shows?

On Anthony Bourdain's No Reservation on the Travel Channel he toured Cleveland. Here's a link to the show guide
http://www.travelchannel.com/TV_Shows/Anthony_Bourdain/ci.Cleveland.show?vgnextfmt=show

I'll never understand why he went to Skyline Chili seeing that they're a Cincinnati chain. Doesn't scream out Cleveland to me.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Schmidt's Sausage Haus and Ohio Deli are the ones you are talking about. Both are awesome. Schmidt's also has the Fudge Haus.

Rachel Ray and her bodysuit has made a trip to Cleveland. She went to Trattoria in Little Italy, Fat Fish Blues (why I dont know) and some place in Shaker Square which the name escapes me.

The only eating competition in Cleveland I have ever seen is dollar dog night with the Tribe. I once saw a family of 3 in front of me polish off more than 30 dogs. I wanted to vomit. The young girl who was in her early teens was eating fries and squeezing ketchup in her mouth like that scene in Tommy Boy. Disgusting

Dont forget that Man vs Food also include Thurman's Cafe on that episode. My most favorite place to get a burger in the world..

Slyman's always wins Best Corned Beef in Esquire magazine and Anthony Bourdain has visited Sokolowki's University Inn. If you havent eaten at those 2 restaurants, I am not sure you are qualified to call yourself a Clevelander.

The Rachel Ray special had Mad Greek and the jazz place (Nighttown?) in Cleveland Heights on it.

Agreed

I would put Thurman's head to head against any Burger on earth. i'm going to have to sneak some Thurmans into the Clippers games.

Rachael's also been to Tommy's, Slyman's & West Side Market on her $40 a Day show

I seem to remember another one of her shows that had her going to Touch Supper Club, Fire & some jazz club (?) in C-Town

Bobby Flay has visited Sokolowski's & West Side Market as well

Went here for the first time on Saturday, the sandwiches are amazing. I have never seen so many variations of grilled cheese plus it has a solid beer list.

Also, I'm convinced I saw the Food Network guy from drive-ins, diners, and dives there. It was either him or a guy trying to look like him.

My office is literally, like 25 yards from the front door of The Melt.
